The best B&B ever!Posted Feb 23, 2014
Pros: Everything! But above all the hospitality of our host Alma: she really does everything to give you an unforgettable stay!
Location: Hout Bay, a small town close to Cape Town. Nice beach, nice harbour. Close to Chapmans Peak drive toward Kalk Bay, must go there. Winelands, go there.
Alma Toerien, the owner of the B&B is the most wonderful host one can imagine! Villa Afrique is beautifully located near Hout Bay harbour, the rooms are beautiful, spacious and absolutely immaculate. Breakfast is served at the terrace (with a fresh bunch of flowers every morning on every table!) with fresh fruits, juices, nice bread and eggs any style. This place makes you feel at home from the moment you enter the house and are welcomed by Alma. Nothing is too much, Alma even took her private Nespresso machine down to serve us our caffe latte. She and her husband Deon made our stay in Hout Bay unforgettable.

Very well run guesthousePosted Jan 12, 2014 on Hotels.com
Very good value for money. It's a good mixture of hotel professionalism & personal touch. The owner goes above & beyond for your comfort. We were offered a glass of champagne for breakfast on the new year day.

Unikt Guest house med rolig beliggenhedPosted Jan 11, 2014 on Hotels.com
Hvis du ønsker et unikt Guest house med rolig beliggenhed lige udenfor Cape Town er dette stedet. Med udsigt over bugten og med 2 min gang til stranden, havnen og dens spisesteder er dette et perfekt alternativ til at bo i Cape Town's centrum. Værelser er pæne og yderst behagelige, servicen er upåklagelig, der er en lille fællesbar med selvbetjening, renligheden er i top, lille pool udenfor, liggestole med badehåndklæder og man kan ikke sætte en finger på morgenmads buffet. Der er ikke aftensmad, men der ligger adskillelige udemærkede spisesteder lige nede på havnen. Næste gang vi kommer til Cape Town er det helt sikkert stedet vi vil bo. Note: Hop on/off busser kører lige forbi, en god og billig måde at komme til og fra Cape Town hvis man ikke er til lejebil. Godt område at cykle MTB/racercykel fra med yderst sikker garage man kan sætte den i. Eneste minus var det manglende Wifi.

GreatPosted Dec 13, 2011
A very restful and peaceful place. beautiful views of the bay. Close to great restaurants. A superb base for exploring the western cape. Not close to nightlife if that is required.

Booked 3 days stayed 3 weeks!Posted Nov 24, 2010
What a delightful place to stay. I was looking for a comfortable place to relax and Villa Afrique was a perfect solution. The Guest House owners, Alma and Dion were helpful, friendly and welcoming. They have clearly gone out of their way to exceed the standards expected of a five star establishment, attention to every detail meant that I felt at home from the moment I arrived. Breakfast was a great start to every day - (do ask Alma for her scrambled eggs!), and there are plenty of restaurants and bars around Hout Bay within an easy walking distance. In short, Villa Afrique is a perfect place to relax and feel spoiled in comfort., and a great location to use as a base for sightseeing around Cape Town etc.. I really did just book 3 days with the intention of travelling around to other places but I figured I wouldn't find anywhere as friendly, comfortable or well appointed - so I stayed for 3 weeks! If I find myself in the Cape Town area again I won't consider staying anywhere else. Thank you Alma and Dion.

A beautiful house run by truly beautiful and friendly people, a true hidden gemPosted Jul 21, 2010
So pleased I stayed at the Villa Afrique guest house. On entering you are greeted by a large bright room where attention to detail with decor, facilities and service are excellent. The hosts, Alma and Dion provided a warm and friendly welcome making you feel like part of the family. My room was a good size with an en-suite having under floor and towel heating. The bed was comfortable; linen was of a very high standard and clean, a turn down service was performed each evening. Breakfast was between 8 and 9 with freshly baked croissants each day and a choice of hot and/or cold food. Parking was off road behind an electric gate which was operated via your key fob as was the room security system. After locking your room, you can active your own burglar alarm dedicated to your room, which I found a nice added security feature. The laundry service was first class having all my clothes washed, dried and ironed very cheaply. Alma's knowledge of the Cape Town and surrounding areas were excellent and Alma went the extra mile by telephoning people in Hermanus, 50 miles away, to ensure my second trip was not wasted as I tried whales watching. Thank you for personal touches it was appreciated as was the information provided about the Stellenbosch area. I would definitely stay with Alma and Dion again if in the Cape Town area "A beautiful house run by truly beautiful and friendly people" a true hidden gem. Visit the Villa Afrique guest house and see for yourself. Very Highly Recommend.
